NVIDIA has formed a strategic partnership with ZF and HELLA to deliver AI technology with the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) safety certification for the mass deployment of self-driving vehicles. The agreement is non-exclusive.
ZF and HELLA will provide customers with a complete self-driving system that integrates front camera units, as well as supporting software functions and radar systems. Hella builds camera systems, radar systems, and other related software systems for ADAS-related tech, and ZF is one of the leading tier 1 suppliers in the car industry.
Using the NVIDIA DRIVE PX AI platform, the partnership aims to produce the highest NCAP safety ratings for passenger cars, while also addressing commercial vehicle and off-highway applications. NVIDIA DRIVE PX offers both NCAP safety and self-driving capabilities on a single platform ready for production.
NVIDIA DRIVE PX will enable ZF and HELLA to develop software for scalable systems starting from modern driver assistance systems that connect their advanced imaging and radar sensor technologies for autonomous driving functionality.
